in a nutshell
Stop putting yourself down. Yes, you must remind yourself often that you are as good as you think you are.
It takes standing in the light to see one’s shadow, but even when in the dark it’s right there with you, keeping you company and urging you to step out of the darkness and into the light.
Guess which shadow is mine 😉
Mundane Monday challenge is created to find beauty in everything.
Never say that someone held you back from becoming who you want to be. They can only try to hinder your steps ‘cos the only person you become is the person that you choose to be.
I’ve missed sharing mundane Monday photos and jumping back into it…with enough gusto I hope.
Taking a brisk work yesterday morning, I came across a little drama on my path and paused to observe a colony of ant work briskly together to move the dead beetle which must have seemed mammoth-sized in their eyes.
Several lessons came to my mind from this display of unity:
a. Increased performance: You can’t move that mammoth in your life single-handedly. most times, you need to work in unison with others to achieve major goals.
b. Increased productivity: Working together has assured this colony of good food in their belly for many days to come – I suppose.
c. Knowing more about yourself: collaborating with others helps you to identify your strengths and weak areas and to build on them.
d. Skills development: I could imagine the head of the ant colony giving out instructions as the leader and the others cooperating to get their hustle done – wish I had ears to understand ant whispers 😉
d. Team building and mutual support: no member of the ant team is left hungry. Your journey need not be a solitary one.
As I ruminated on these few points, it buttressed in my mind the fact that every successful person out there enjoyed the support of others. In other for one or a team to excel, individual members must learn to work well together. They have to be able to put thoughts of their own personal accomplishments aside to work for the benefit of the team which invariably benefits all.
Are there other lessons you can decipher from this act of togetherness?
